    i have been wondering what is the exact amount that you need in order to tell your boss it's over. which one works better, being a millionaire or just simply have income that is 5 times more than all your expenses combined.

    $463,284.11 per year, at the time of this writing. That is subject to change, of course.

    We both can pay cash for sh*t. Me nice sh*t. MJ really nice sh*t.
    You'll know when you get there.

    I wouldn't know but i'm guessing whether its a billion or a million as long as you are financially free and money isn't an issue or worry the feeling would be the same.

    but the bigger home will require more property taxes maintenance etc plus we dont know how much that would go up which could be exponentially

    Neither.

    What if the very problem is simply the fact that you're attributing the amount of money you have on the outside to whether you can quit or not.

    The answer is irrelevant because the question in itself is flawed.

    Can you have $0 in your bank account and walk downtown today, talk to people, and sell them on some type of services you provide; coming home tonight $5,000 wealthier than you started?

    Or will will you have $50,000 in your bank account, and have no clue how to bring products or services into the market place, allowing the money to quickly drain away from your mortgage payments, car loan, credit card bills, and other expenses?

    What if the question is not about what you have, but who you are and what you are capable of doing.

    What if in order to make it in this world, it's really about becoming the type of person who is able to make it on their own?

    Strange question to ask.......

    Here is my take on it.

    9-5 job ........... Sorry no chance.

    When you make money before you put your shoes on in the morning you`re finally on the right path.

    When you care little what things cost you`re getting into it.

    When you value time more than money............You`re home

    I think there are different stages of f*ck you.

    For me, the first stage is less about one specific number and more about the confidence in to create value & sell it.

    In my case it means I'm able to learn a new skill and can create enough value for my clients for them to pay me - in a short period of time.

    Now, that is not a level of f*ck you to live your life in complete freedom.
    But it is enough to not longer be dependend on your boss to survive.


    On the other end of the spectrum is the big f*ck you money pot - enough money to live however you want to do.
    This number depends on your lifestyle, your monthly expenses and your money system.

    If you don't know what to aim for, read @V8Bill s thread to get started. If you need more input, read his book.



    Forum member's number won't help you, because they are living a different life and have a different money system.

    I personally don't think it matters how much is in your bank account. It's how much you believe your worth yourself. I've told people to f off, simply because they were my down fall financially. Freedom isn't always about just money. They liberation starts with your mind. If you look at any boss and employee service you're the submissive operator.

    Told what you're to do on their terms. The Boss is the dominate figure. Holds the Power if you allow them too on their terms. Now they can be the best boss in the world, as I've had some great experiences. I've also had terrible experiences with other individuals. Health is number one key. I've heard many times their boss is the biggest Villain, and they make six figures. They are stressed, filled with anxiety, and depression. Now if you're aiming for Entrepreneurship, you liberate yourself from other controlling your life in all these areas. Still you have stress, anxiety, and depression. You just have control over your heath and finances by the choices you make alone.

    When is it enough? I believe every Entrepreneur on the block has a different story in that answer. What will you sacrifice to have total freedom? Some sacrifice more than others. Some have a harder time than others in the process. There is no definite answer to give you.

    For me more about the money is what the job brings to you also on an intrinsic base. Even if I would get paid millions for cleaning bathrooms or having the worst boss possible I would prefer doing something else where I have autonomy and a sense of mastery in the workplace, whether as me as the owner or in a company where I have enough freedom to do interesting stuff.

    You can't stick a number on freedom.
    Learn that time doesn't have a price tag , because you can choose how much your time is worth.

    Don't even start calculating numbers in your head if there is nothing that will generate those numbers.

    Good luck with your future businesses!

    You also obviously didn't read TMF and UNSCRIPTED , otherwise you would've known that time is your most valuable asset.
    Not money. Not saying "f*ck you" to your boss.

    What's 7000 billion in your bank worth if you die tomorrow?
    Think about that for a second.

    Good luck & have fun with the books
